Jon Lovitz – honing his comedy craft
Jon Lovitz developed a keen interest in comedy at a young age, becoming enamoured with Woody Allen in college. After leaving education in the late 70s, he went on to join the improvisational comedy troupe the Groundlings. It was his time with this team that would shape him into one of the sharpest comic wits in the country, bringing him into contact with other legends of the future including Phil Hartman. Although he maintained a steady income and respectable career with the troupe, it wasn’t until the 1984 that his fortunes would transform when he was cast on Saturday Night Live, an American institution that has remained one of the most-watched shows in the USA for decades.
Lovitz enjoyed a five-year run on the show, becoming famous across the country for his comic turns. During his tenure, he invented several characters that would go down as some of the most popular in the history of the comedy show, including the likes of Hanukkah Harry and Tommy Flanagan. He also established himself as a keen mimic, turning out impressive takes on Hollywood’s heavyweights.
